On the Road Again... [Nov. 9th, 2006|09:46 pm]
terribleturnip
Well, assuming that I can get everything packed...don't laugh, most of it has to be washed first. Then there's regular clothes, pirate clothes, renfair and festival gear and accesssories. Stuff that makes the stay at the house in Florida more pleasant -- my own pillow, sheets and towels so that I don't have to wash all that the morning we leave to come home, music, DVDs, games, birthday present for auntie. Dog stuff (honestly, it's like traveling with small children...the food, the meds, the treats, the blankets, the coats, the extra collars/leashes, the bowls, the beds) and of course, heaven forbid I go anywhere without copious amounts of Diet Mountain Dew, booze, snacks and reading material for myself. Or anyone else who gets snowed into a hotel room with me. Repairing the big rip in the rooftop carrier. Vacuuming out the entire bag of popcorn that exploded all over the inside of the car.

(Note to self: opening a big bag of popcorn, propping it on top of the cooler and driving on the Beltway, where suddenly slamming on your brakes is a given...bad idea.)

Well, at least I have a long car ride to nap and mentally prepare myself for the whiplash of a weekend with the Hounds at CRF, a week of sitting under the mango tree, drinking rum drinks and watching the dolphins cavort around the dock, a wisit mit Tante & Oncle in Little Bavaria, then a pirate festival (who thought 10am-10pm were reasonable show hours?) and then back home and back into the fray.

Somewhere in there was a little bit that sounded like a vacation...

It's what I do best.

Well, other than that thing with my tongue...

You know...

...if you REALLY want popcorn ALL OVER your car, I'm sure you could find a popcorn machine to install on the dash. (just being helpful).

Have a great time and TAKE pics...so I can vacation vicariously through you and yours.

*smooches*
